iPad Hong Kong Official Release Date
iPad Hong Kong release news is heating up, since July is suppose to be the month it appointed arrives in Hong Kong from Apple Hong Kong. The expected date of availability is July 19th as it was reported two weeks ago, and then last Saturday comes news of an Apple announcement on July 15th (today).
Yesterday Smartone-Vodafone discharged a press release stating it they will announce their tariff plans for the iPad WiFi+3G, without providing any dates on which they will do so.
SmarTone-Vodafone announced that it will offer dedicated iPad Hong Kong cost plans for iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G in the coming weeks. iPad allows users to link up with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can buy at the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch user interface.
One of the larger Apple authorised reseller in Hong Kong, announced their pricing for the iPad WiFi and iPad WiFi+3G models. The cheapest iPad model which comes with 16GB costs HKD$3,888.00 (approx. USD526) and the most expensive model, 64GB that comes with wifi and 3G costs HKD$6,488.00 (approx. USD835).
These prices are approximately the same as the Apple US list prices after USD to HKD conversion and rounding to match typical HK pricing. Again proving my point that iPad Hong Kong is the least expensive place to bargain any Apple products. Ultimate are presently taking pre-orders with a HKD1000.00 deposit, the expected delivery date is in 2 – 3 weeks.
In addition, apple also release some prices for the iPad acessories. If you find the virtual keyboard too small for your fingers, you could buy the Apple iPad Keyboard Dock which costs HKD$548. The Apple iPad Case costs HKD$298. And if you want to have webcam capabilities on your iPad, you can get the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit at HKD$228.
